Lemmon is very warm and inviting. The one thing I would hope to see change in Lemmon is the availability of fun activities in town. Lemmon is a small town of about 1,300 people, so it is very safe for families. Crime rate is very low here, as it is in most small towns. One public school in town makes for a very important emphasis on sports each year, which is one of my personal favorite aspects of Lemmon.

Lemmon is small town. I know so many people which makes small town life good. We have man made petrified park made out of rocks. People from all over come to walk through the park. I have been very blessed by being able to start and prosper in my lawn mowing business, as well as to start a tree trimming business. My business has grown by work of personal references. I have been trying to work and pay as much as i can. I would appreciate any help you could give me.
The local businesses in Lemmon, South Dakota are average, but not excellent. Our grocery store does not offer that wide of a variety of certain foods such as fruits and vegetables while our gas stations are well maintained along with our pharmacy.
